Aside from enzymes and probiotics, there aren’t many things more important for digestive health than dietary fiber.* Also known as roughage, dietary fiber is any indigestible portion of the fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains we eat.
The role of dietary fiber in digestion is to provide “food” for intestinal bacteria, helping to maintain the health of the cells lining the GI tract.* In addition, fiber helps the body to detoxify, by adhering to toxins that are secreted into the digestive tract by the liver, so they can be more easily eliminated.*
